Magic Jumping Beans & Kangaroo Mingle

One of the great things about the “Ninja Bootcamps” is that Β we also get to learn lots of Β really cool teaching tricks from each other.

For example in this weekend’s workshop we had a great bunch of teachers and one of the great suggestions was “magic jumping beans”.

If you feel your class is getting a little tired or not putting as much in as you think they should, just go round pretending to throw a magic jumping bean into everyone’s mouth! Β Then they all start jumping!

It works great as a little “bring them back to life” trick for after lunch.

We also had the idea of “Kangaroo Mingle” where the kids do the mingle game as kangaroos! Β Just to make it a touch more fun.

Plus we had a very nice testimonial, if any of you are thinking of joining us in the future!

Thank you everyone for another great weekend!

P.S. Β I’m having a professional videographer coming to film this weekend’s workshop in Kyushu so if you have requests for games or songs you’d like to see in video, please write them up in the comments!
